Storyline

Tru Davies, a medical grad student in Boston whose grant is suddenly pulled out from under her, takes a job at a local morgue. There, she discovers that she has the power to "re-live" the previous day over again to help the people who wrongly ended up dead. She uses this gift not only to save lives, but to help her trouble-plagued family - her older sister Meredith, a lawyer and drug addict in denial; and her younger, irresponsible, slacker, gambling brother Harrison. Written by An Eliza Dushku fan

Trivia

At the The University of Colorado at Boulder's 57th Annual Conference on World Affairs in 2005, star Eliza Dushku's mother Judith Dushku (a Professor of Government at Suffolk University) told a story about her daughter's growing dissatisfaction with the writing and her character as the show went on. According to Mrs. Dushkhu, Eliza had been promised that Tru Calling (2003) would be another "strong girl" show, in the tradition of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), and that her character would be a role model for young women. However, by about the sixth episode, Eliza was calling her mother to complain about egregiously weak and dumb traits in her character. Examples given by Mrs. Dushku include: an argument that Eliza had with the showrunners because she refused to play a scene in which Tru did not know what a map was (and she had to have a man tell her) and Eliza being told that Tru shouldn't be seen studying for her MCATs (even though she was supposed to be a medical student). Eliza also made a list of all the script instructions written to describe Tru's state of mind, and they always included words like "overwhelmed," "surprised," "shocked," and "bewildered," but never instructions for Tru to be strong, confident, or sure of herself.

Heed the Calling
4 November 2003 | by (Swainsboro, Georgia) – See all my reviews

If you're expecting "Buffy," run now. "Tru Calling" has drama and action, but on a more human level. Eliza Dushku, who plays Tru Davies, is a young woman who sets out to save lives. Not just those of her on-the-edge siblings, but also those of the recently dead!

Mysterious cries for help, a twelve hour rewind on the world, and Tru must fix things before it's too late. Again. As she races to solve the mysteries surrounding the lives of endangered strangers, she must also try to keep her family and friends from making terrible mistakes. Every moment is another chance to help or hurt, and Tru knows it.

"Tru Calling" is a rare find among TV shows. It stresses the power of the individual to affect change, the bond of familial love, and a sense of loyalty to strangers in need. Ms. Dushku is an amazing actress, beautiful, and definitely one to watch.

Give "Tru Calling" a chance to sweep you up in its web of mystery and hope. You'll be glad you did.
